Question about 2006 Jeep Commander
2006 Jeep Commander - sometimes I will turn the key and nothing happens - all of the instrument panel lights come on, radio comes on and fan blows but no start. The engine doesn't turn over - just nothing. I will have to turn the key several times to get it to start and sometimes will have to wait a few minutes before retrying.
I have the same problem, live in ohio and have replaced my battery to make sure that wasn't the issue. I have noticed if i have the doors shut and wait for the dvd for the nav system to stop reading and then turn the key and hold it, with in 2 or 3 seconds it kicks in and starts like normal. Would love to know what is causing this. I have read a lot of other posts where drivers have replaced the starters but still didn't help.

Check (in order) battery connections (must be clean on contact surfaces and secure) starter relay, ignition switch (power in, power out with key turned to start), starter (12volts at main terminal all times, 12v at trigger wire with key turned to start) and neutral safety switch.(power in, power out key turned to start). Tests can be done with a test light but I prefer a volt meter because it not only tells me power is there, but how much.
Likely your problem is at the battery connection.
